Rockfax Description
Up the leaning arete on its right side by technical laybacking and long reaches, until a grasping exit round the arete becomes essential. Swinging around a couple of moves earlier reduces the grade to a more sensible E1 5b. © Rockfax

Climbed up to the crux and decided it was too late, too hot and couldn't see the gear to place in the break. Reversed the moves and will be back in cooler conditions.

James Oakes 04/Oct/14 Solo β

Up and down a few times to sus out the crux.

Awesome laybacking with great feet, felt very steady for 6a. Can get a little green though. Will be back to lead/solo.
